[Solved]-Django.core.exceptions.ValidationError: ["'' is not a valid UUID."]


Your problem is that you are trying to access request.POST

So something is wrong with the type of the id.

From https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.11/ref/models/fields/:


class UUIDField(**options)[source]¶

A field for storing universally unique identifiers. Uses Python’s UUID class. When used on PostgreSQL, this stores in a uuid datatype, otherwise in a char(32).

ship = Ship.objects.get(id=shipID)

where shipID is a string. Should your line be
